Review: The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

The Golden Compass follows the story of a girl called Lyra and her dæmon Pantalaimon. In her world, the souls of humans are tied to that of animal creatures whose bodies change up until the time of puberty. It was an interesting concept and I very much enjoyed it. These dæmons are either male or female depending on their human counterpart. Female humans have male dæmons and males have female dæmons.
